Pathankot attack: Pakistan acts against JeM

Pakistan said on Wednesday it had arrested Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) activists and sealed its offices as part of a crackdown following the terror attack on an IAF base in India.

An official statement also said that Pakistan needed more information from India on the alleged Pakistani links to the January 2 attack at Pathankot in Punjab that left seven Indian security personnel dead.

Islamabad was considering sending a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to Pathankot in consultation with New Delhi, it added.

The statement said "several individuals belonging to JeM have been apprehended. The offices of the organisation are also being traced and sealed. Further investigations are underway".
